We sell cut lengths by the running or linear foot in continuous lengths.
That is 1 foot = 12" x 24". 2 feet = 24" x 24", 3 feet = 24" x 36" . . .
NOTE: It is cheaper to purchase a Full 25 foot Carton of 1" material than two 10 foot cut lengths.
While we specialize in supplying small quantities we can also provide truck load quantities anywhere in North America.
Please do not confuse our prices with others who sell at similar prices but by the square foot. We have a significant price breaks at 5 feet, 10 feet and for full cartons with quantity discounts.ABSOLUTELY NO RETURNS on cut materials
NOTE: Higher Rated Kaowool Cerablanket has replaced Kaowool RT at the same price.
Kaowool Cerablanket (AKA Cera Wool) - 2,400°F / 1,315°C is the original asbestos replacement material invented by Babcock and Wilcox and is similar to Inswool and other competing products.
In blanket form Kaowool is commonly used to insulate high temperature furnaces, process piping and to build forges and kilns.
The great advantage of Kaowool over other refractories is its very low density and easy of handling. The density of Kaowool is approximately the same a dense fiber glass blanket and less than balsa wood. The blanket is easy to cut with scissors or a utility knife making it possible to cut accurate shapes. This ease of handling quickly offsets the cost difference compared to castable or refractory brick while providing a much higher insulating value.
Kaowool is commonly used to construct blacksmiths' forges and is often left uncoated. However, Kaowool should be coated with a hard refractory to protect it from physical damage and creating airborne refractory dust. ITC-100 is commonly used but is not 100% resistant to poking with sharp objects. A coating of refractory cement or patching compound such as Grefpatch or ITC-200 is recommended in hard use areas followed by another coating of ITC-100.
Kaowool Cerablanket comes in cartons of 50 square feet of 1" thick 24" wide rolled material, and 100 Square feet of 1/2" thick 24" wide material. We sell cut lengths starting at one foot (two square feet), partial cartons and full cartons.
NOTE! Weight reported on the invoice is shipping weight including UPS oversize (dimensional weight) for full cartons.
